Obesity greatly affects the development of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disorders. The heart’s structure and function are both affected due to obesity, which may cause a variety of health problems. The consequences of obesity on the cardiovascular system were examined in this research. The present research recruited 100 participants which were statistically analyzed using the SPSS tool and Likert Scale. Using a standardized questionnaire, data were gathered on variables such as demographics, food, exercise, substance use, smoking, and drinking habits. It was found that except for the age group, where it was hypothesized that vegetarianism would have a positive correlation with age (r = 0.857, p < 0.005), and where it was hypothesized that cycling would have a strong positive correlation with weight lifting (r = 0.699, p < 0.005). As a result, the conclusion that was reached was that age range has a favorable correlation with vegetarian and physical activity cycling has a correlation with weight lifting.
